Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering majors are required to complete the following:
- CHEM 1128Q or 1148Q;
- ENGR 1166;
- MATH 2110Q and 2410Q;
- CE 2110 and 3110;
- MSE 2001, 2002, 2053, 3001, 3002, 3003, 3004, 3055, 3056, 4001, 4003, 4004, 4005, 4901W, and 4902W.
- Professional requirement courses (12 credits);
- Technical Elective courses (9 credits).
Elective sequences that satisfy the (12 credit) MSE concentrations in Electronic Materials, Metallurgy, Biomaterials, Nanomaterials, and Energy Materials as well as recommended Professional and Technical Electives are listed below.
Electronic Materials Concentration
The additional required credits can come from the previous list or from the following: BIOL 1107; MCB 2210; CHEM 2443; a BME special topics course taught as Regenerative Medicine and Engineering; MSE 4095 biomaterials research in faculty labs* (3 credits total, may be split across multiple terms); additional courses with biomaterials content taught by various departments.*
*Must be approved by biomaterials advisor.
The additional required credits can come from the previous list or from the following: ENGR 4243, 4244; PHYS 2300, 3401, 3402; CHEM 3563, 3564; MSE 4095 nanomaterials research in faculty labs* (3 credits total, may be split across multiple terms); additional courses with nanomaterials content taught by various departments.*
* Must be approved by nanomaterials advisor.
Energy Materials Concentration
Recommended professional elective courses are 12 credits from: any 3000 or 4000 level MSE elective course; BME 3700 and 4701; CHEG 3156; ME 3217 and 3228. Only one 3-credit independent study course may be used as a professional elective. Students with CGPA of 3.2 or greater may elect letter-grade graduate courses.
Technical Elective Requirement
Nine credits, selected from all 2000, 3000, and 4000 courses in the basic sciences, mathematics, and in any engineering discipline other than Materials Science and Engineering are accepted as technical electives. At least 3 credits must be selected from the basic sciences or mathematics: Mathematics (MATH), Biological Sciences (BIOL), Chemistry (CHEM), Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB), Physics (PHYS), and Statistics (STAT).
Selection of courses is detailed in the Materials Science and Engineering Course Selection Guide.
The Materials Science and Engineering program educational objectives are that within three to five years after graduation, in their professional careers and/or graduate programs, our alumni/ae will have: progressed in responsible professional positions and/or will have attained or will be successfully moving toward attaining post-graduate degrees; earned recognition for applying and continually expanding special, in-depth competencies in materials design, selection, characterization, and/or processing; earned recognition for applying and continually expanding professional skills of critical and cooperative thinking, communication, and leadership; and become engaged with and contributing to professional societies and collaborating with the MSE Program Faculty in providing opportunities for current and potential MSE majors.
